A suspected internet scam has been reported in south-east South Australia, said by Limestone Coast police.

Police also said, though the scam has been recognized in further parts of the state but was reported in only in the south-east on Tuesday.

It’s found that a woman was called by man with a US accent stating him to be from Microsoft.

Senior Constable Paul Scicluna says the man administered to remotely access the woman’s computer to remove inferred viruses and then demanded fee for the service.

“First thing they need to do is be vigilant in listening to what they’re being asked. Don’t be fooled into accepting the person is who they say they are just because they state they’re from a reputable company like Microsoft,” he alerted. (Ambien)
